Founded in the 1920s, Camp Yungvelt was a Yiddish summer camp for Jewish children. It was originally situated on Lake Wilcox, but later moved to Pickering, where it operated until it closed in the 1950s. It was established by the Workmen's Circle and affiliated with the I. L. Peretz Schools. Camp Yungvelt was known for accepting the children of poor immigrants for a fraction of the regular fee.
